Fun and Easy Birthday Cards

Hi friends,

Just popping in with a few super quick and easy birthday cards!

The stamps I used are all from Unity Stamp Company. The little chick is from the Birthday Wishes Peep set. The sweet Otter is from the Otter Love This Much set. And the cupcake is from the Birthday Treat set. The “birthday wishes” sentiment is part of the Birthday Wishes Peep set and “happy birthday” sentiment is one I received in a grab bag from Unity.

To make the cards, I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored them with Copic markers.

For the Birthday Peep card, I trimmed the stamped image and then layered it to a green card stock square die cut using Pink Fresh Studio Essentials Diagonal Stitches Square die set. I embossed a panel of blue card stock with a dot embossing folder (similar to this) and attached it to a white card. I stamped the sentiment with green ink on white card stock, punched it with a label punch, and layered it to a larger label punched from green card stock. (The punches I used are no longer available, but this is a great set of label dies if you are looking for some.) The peep image and sentiment are attached to the card with foam tape.

For the sweet Otter card, I die cut him using the Pink Fresh Studio Essentials Diagonal Stitches Square die set and layered the image to red card stock. I embossed a piece of turquoise card stock that had a white core using a birthday embossing folder. (I don’t think the one I used is available anymore, but I love this one!) Then I lightly sanded the raised areas to bring out the white core and attached it to a white card. The otter is attached the the card with foam tape.

For the Cupcake card, I die cut the image with a circle die and layered it to a larger blue card stock circle. (This is a great set of circle dies.) I attached a strip of patterned paper to a white card and stamped the sentiment with green ink. I attached the stamped image to the card with foam tape.

These cards really come together quickly! I think it took me longer to write this post than it did to make the cards! 😉

I hope these will inspire you to pull out your favorite stamps and make some fun cards. 🙂

Happy Stamping!

Anita
